The First Indian Bilingual Projects, Title VII Meeting: A Report.
Language in American Indian Education, Spr 1972
The purpose of the First Indian Bilingual Projects, Title VII Meeting was to discuss experiences and exchange ideas on the development of evaluation design and measurable objectives, the involvement of parents and community, and the development of materials. Sessions were held on unobtrusive measures, measuring language dominance, parent and community involvement, small group instruction for the classroom, and materials development. Suggestions included that at least 2 meetings be held per year; that the entire project staff be given an opportunity for input and agreement in the area of evaluation; that more community members be present for future meetings; that native speakers be trained to become bilingual teachers; and that presentation, display, and demonstration of project-developed materials be a major part of future meetings.
